The LA Clippers emerge from the All-Star break with a record of 33-28 as the fourth-best team in the Western Conference. Injuries have kept Paul George and Kawhi Leonard away from a large number of games this season, but the Clippers’ roster depth has kept them in tact. With playoffs on their mind, their front office decided they weren’t done yet. NBA insider Adrian Wojnarwoski reported today that Russell Westbrook has been acquired by the Jazz and is signing with the LA Clippers.

Ironically, Westbrook stays in LA and only plays for the other team. He was traded from the Lakers to the Jazz at close and is now back in the Arena; this time with the Clippers. The 2016-17 NBA MVP has been very selfless towards the Lakers this season, even taking on a role on the bench, his coach insisted.

With the addition of Westbrook and a few other players via trade, the California sports betting sites have the Clippers at (+1200) to win the finals this season.

After nine-time All-Star guard Russell Westbrook signed a deal with the Utah Jazz, he plans to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, his agent Jeff Schwartz @excelbasketball says ESPN.

Westbrook reunited with former teammate Paul George as a member of the LA Clippers

When Lakers head coach Darvin Ham benched Russell Westbrook, it was clear his time on the team was quickly running out. In 52 games for the Lakers this season, he averaged (15.9) points, (6.2) rebounds, (7.5) assists and (1.0) steals per game. He led the Lakers in assists per game before being traded.

After trading Reggie Jackson and John Wall, the Clippers were thin at PG depth and Westbrook was an easy pick for them. He’s got an extremely powerful engine and there’s a reason he’s averaged a triple-double in four seasons of his career. Westbrook can bring that effort and intensity to a Clippers team looking for a deep playoff run.

Who is stopping these Big 3?

The Jazz at Westbrook were reportedly welcome to join the team, but they couldn’t guarantee how big of a role he’d play or how many minutes he’d get per game. He must have had a better conversation with the Clippers and they probably plan on using him in a bigger role. At 34, Westbrook still has plenty in the tank and is poised to be the starting PG the Clippers have been looking for this season.
